Could someone please explain to me the desire to take every video game and make it into a movie (generally a whole franchise)?  How about explaining Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat) and Milla Jovovich's (Kuffs) obsession with being the people behind these types of movies?  I get it…The Resident Evil films were well-received (... Read More

If you could possibly create a biologically perfect child, would you? If there were so many advances in technology that a couple could rule out heart defects, major diseases, etc., and choose eye color, hair color, intelligence, and even the baby's gender, do you think that technology should be utilized?  What if it wasn't 100% foolproof? &nbs...

What if you watched a movie about poor African Americans living in New York?  What if that film depicted growing racial tensions between black people and Italian or Korean shop owners in the neighborhood?  What if, after a confrontation between the shop owners and the locals, a young black man was killed by the police which started a riot...
